The Center for Somatic Psychotherapy (CSP) Marriage and Family Therapist Trainee Pnina Shamsi Pnina Shamsi

I work relationally, and believe that when we are truly seen by another, something stirs within our wisest self that guides what we most need to know for healing. My approach is creating a safe space for this wisest self to navigate the way. My style is compassionate and direct; I believe transformation happens when we can see ourselves clearly, with curiosity, and without shame or judgment.

I have a background in yoga and the healing arts, where I specialized in working with individuals with physical disabilities. The body's capacity for resilience and healing has astounded me. In our sessions, somatic practices and curiosities help reveal much of what wants to be expressed through the body through movement, images, gesture, playfulness, sensation, and breath.

I welcome all populations and specialize in work around health crises, dis-ease/disability, mind/body healing, PTSD, anger, and life transitions.
